Slide-out weight effect coach frame ??
We have a new Thor ACE 29.1 30' class A Motorhome. It has 1 slide-out in the middle of the coach.
Just got back from first over-nighter. Only 300+ miles round trip.
Had a great time and no real problems. Weighed ACE on way out at a commercial scale. With me ( 240# ) , DW ( 135 # ) , DD - dear dog ( 100 # ) , 3/4 tank gas, 3/4 tank fresh, MT grey & black, clothes, food etc. we came in at 15,080 lbs. total. Thought it would be higher.
One thing I noticed or rather the wife noticed was that after leveling ( we have the auto-leveling jacks ) there was a slight tilt in the middle of the coach down towards the slide-out side. I had a 32" level with me and the front and rear were level but there was a small but noticeable tilt in the center of the coach. In other words the coach frame was slightly twisted as if the weight of the slide-out once it was extended was pulling / twisting the coach down in that direction. Does any one know if this is normal for a slide-out when it is extended?
